Where to Start? Bringing Climate Change to the Board

GovernWith’s CEO and Founder Fi Mercer was joined by Climatologist and Speaker Neil Plummer, to delve into how we can untangle the issues surrounding Climate Change and bring tangible risks and opportunities to the boardroom table. A huge contemporary risk for Boards and Directors to tackle, Fi and Neil unpacked Climate Change, how it relates to the Board and top tips to get started.

These opportunities may include:
  • access to new markets
  • improved resilience
  • reducing excessive insurance premiums
  • reducing your energy and material costs
  • better staff recruitment and retention, and
  • improved reputation.

Climate savvy pathways enables your business to apply current information to improve your:
